Ghost Anger Stream (|)

Difficulty:

Spring 2001

NT West

Trip Description

This is a relatively short stream. Almost two-third of the stream is flat rocky land. The rocks are small and easy to climb. You can hardly find any big pools in the first half of the stream. Almost the entire stream is exposed and there is no big trees and scrubs covering the stream. But once you pass the flat land and suddenly enter into a deep valley in the last stage of the stream, you will see the "real anger of the ghost."

You can walk through a paved path from Tsing Lung Tau (CsY) at Yuen Tun Valley ([), and you will walk beneath the Tuen Mun Highway and then reach the Tai Lam Country Park. Walk beside the Sham seng Settlement Basin and the dam of it, you can find a very wide catchwater.

Location 6
Altitude : 195M

Description : This is the critical point of the ghost. You must overcome the "anger" by relying on a rope (not totally reliable though). This is the only way. The cliff is over 50 degree and it may be slippery when water runs down. There is no big foot hole either. Remain claim and proceed slowly. Novice must not try the big wall during rainy season.
